The principal way to counter any shortcomings on the feet is for Esparza to constantly push forward to engineer grappling situations, but this can come at a significant cost. Jandiroba is a legit BJJ black belt, with 12 submissions in 15 wins, and she used those skills to win the Invicta strawweight title. Waterson dropped her next fight to another ex-champ when she lost a decision to Carla Esparza. Hill landed at a 55 percent clip in that round, her best percentage of the fight.

Waterson won't have it all her own way, but should have enough to insert herself into title talk at the expense of the former champion.

Waterson excels in close-quarters situations where she can disguise high kicks to the head of an oncoming opponent. Everyone loves random stats, well, at least I do. Even with the loss, Hill did not lose momentum. You may opt-out by. Andrade has had problems with longer fighters, I’d take Chookagian by decision at +136.
